Yes, I was suicidal to the point where I thought long and hard about how I was going to do it. Then I searched and found where I was going to do it. Then I would go to that location daily and ask myself, let's see what tomorrow brings. If things got worse, I was planning to die there.<br />
<br />
But things didn't get worse and I eventually, as in a year or two later, found myself losing the desire to die. I had the help of wonderful friends and a very loving family. Plus I had a great job that let me focus on it and that kept my mind away from the self-destructive thoughts. I was going through a divorce at the time and one of the reasons I wanted to die was to deny her the money she was trying to squeeze out of me. Stupid, isn't it? But when you're that depressed, it seems as good a reason to die as any.<br />
<br />
But life is great now and I am very glad to be alive today! I have met so many wonderful women online and I look forward to settling down someday.<br />
<br />
However, I've never taken medication for it. I don't drink coffee. I don't drink alcohol. I have good self confidence. Maybe all that makes a difference?

Best Answer

it has been, it's a perpetual search for a good balance, I've been fifteen years, and finally when making the last switch from zyprexa to invega in the mix, my most troubling side effects ceased. I was sleeping 14-16 hours a day on the zyprexa, now I'm up and ready to go after 9. It's taken me fifteen years to get to a point where I can start taking ground back from the disease, but you can't give up don't be afraid to switch up medications every couple of months, I waited years sometimes when I could have shortened that time dramatically by making a switch sooner rather than later
